fixes #1224

This PR ensures all databases found in a configuration directory that match the files in inspect-data.json will be set to immutable as outlined in

specifically on building the datasette instance it checks:
- if immutables is an empty tuple - as passed by the cli code
- if immutables is the default function value None - when it's not explicitly set

And correctly builds the immutable database list from the inspect-data[file] keys.

Note for this to work the inspect-data.json file must contain file paths which are relative to the configuration directory otherwise the file paths won't match and the dbs won't be set to immutable.

I couldn't find an easy way to test this due to the way make_app_client works, happy to take directions on adding a test for this.

I've updated the relevant docs as well, i.e. use the inspect cli cmd from the config directory path to create the relevant file

cd $config_dir
datasette inspect *.db --inspect-file=inspect-data.json
